that NSX to F50 that Shan2nu posted is .....err weird!
He had a NSX ...and must have spent loads to make it into a replica F50....why ??
Just for the F badge or was he bored...he actually had a good looking sports car to start with .....really mindboggling

EVO6 i think you need to rethink that.......when you talk about DC you must remember that Aston Martin picked him to fabricate their DB9 Prototype........Aston Martin as you know is up there in the Automobile scene.....besides that DC Design does make some freakishly ugly cars and bikes [Some being design requests and demands by the Customer] but the good designs outweigh the bad ones...........and he is the Pioneer of Automobile Design in our country....and a guru to many amateur designers, one of them being me!!!

And my last point being that the McLaren you say is better than a DC Design is downright ugly.........that coming from a designers POV!!!

Yeah, that Mclaren replica is the worst i've seen. Not just the design but also the finish.

I wouldn't give him any credit. That's no replica, it's an insult to the Mclaren F1.

It doesn't get WORSE than this..God, it is like trying to make a clone of yourself, what's the matter with the suspension...it looks so aweful......on hte other hand it is good work modifying a NSX to a Ferrari....but this cannot be entertained by others as it is making a duplicate of a legend.

I agree Edmund ... But then everything that is designed well doesnt necessarily convert to a final product...
DC maybe a good designer but then how many designs of his have actually gotten converted into a good looking vehicle ...
This is my POV .........

There's a diff here bcoz, DC doesn't make replicas. He either modifies road cars or comes up with his own designs so, there's nothing you can compare it to.

But this is horrible, it's like DC trying to convert a NHC into a Ferrari Enzo (which is unacceptable).

DC's designs maynot be good but, they're surely not as bad and humiliating as this one.
